Nat Wolff wasn't exactly acting when he took on his new role as a teen looking to apply for college in upcoming Focus Features comedy Admission. Best known for The Naked Brothers Band series with his brother Alex, Wolff, 18, was also a full-time student when he was shooting the film opposite costars Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, so the pressures of applications were very, very real.
In Admission, Wolff plays Jeremiah, a Princeton hopeful who gets a leg up on the competition when the university's admissions officer (played by Fey) believes he may be the son that she gave up in a secret adoption years ago. Rudd stars as Jeremiah's high school principal in the film based Jean Hanff Korelitz's book of the same name.
"It was actually making me kind of anxious," Wolff tells Us Weekly about first reading the script, adapted by Paul Weitz (director of In Good Company and Little Fockers).
During a Get Schooled visit to Validus Prep, he admitted to skipping classes to talk to the students about pursuing higher education. "Typically I'd be heading to my Current Politics now, so I'm not just coasting!" he assured Us.
